Whether you love or loathe the look, here are my tips on how to work K-Stew’s fave trend!

Kristen Stewart is the Converse queen so I’m never surprised to see her sporting sneakers with a short dress, but it looks like her trend is catching on! Kelly Bensimon was out and about in NYC yesterday wearing her sneakers with a casual frock — and she isn’t the only one I’ve seen working this look! In the summer it seems like more and more girls pair their dresses with sneakers, and while I’m not big on the trend, I must admit, if you work it with the right outfit it can look super cute!

While on the red carpet it doesn’t really seem appropriate, with an airy dress like Kelly’s you can stay casual while still looking stylish. I recommend shying away from a black sneaker — light, fun colors and even patterns that aren’t too dark or eye catching are probably your best bet — after all, you want it to compliment your look! As for the frock, I would opt for something casual — whether it’s a printed get-up or something solid the possibilities are endless, as long as it’s not dressy!

So what do you think? Would you try this trend or is it totally tacky?
